HC Deb 20 November 1968 vol 773 c290W
Mr. Whitaker

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what progress he has made in his consultations concerning the removal of any distinction between officers and other ranks in their eligibility for decorations and honours.

Mr. Reynolds

I am afraid that I am not yet ready to send a final reply to my hon. Friend's representations on a complicated matter which is not exclusively my responsibility.
